    vCenter Server upgrade to version 5.0

    Nikhil Patwa Expert


      I would like to know during upgrade of vCenter Server 5.0 do we require a new license key or it use's the existing version's license key.


      I have vCenter Server 4.1 Standard installed together with 6 ESXi 4.1 hosts installed with vSphere Enterprise Plus licenses each with 2 CPU. I am planning to upgrade my virtualization environment to vCenter Server 5.0 and vSphere 5.0 Enterprise Plus, please can someone brief me on the license requirements - can I use the existing vCenter 4.1 and vSphere 4.1 licenses to upgrade to version 5.0 thus I would not be required to buy new licenses.


      Hoping to receive some information on my queries.
